Scottish Light and Land:

There’s something unique about Scottish light and how it compliments the landforms – just like the Scottish people (and indeed people everywhere), landscapes too have their changing moods, their storms and periods of calm when they shine radiantly like the sun.  I always feel that the Scottish countryside always looks most dramatic in changable conditions with a low angle sun, particularly late or early on in the season – when detail and form in the landscape are illuminated by shafts of light beaming down from the heavens like giant spotlights. Although the term “dreich” was invented by us Scots to describe, perhaps unfairly, our dull and frequently inclement weather, it certainly does not always apply as you’ll see. As evidence of this, here are a random selection of landscape pictures from around the country, many of which I took far back in the mists of time:
